Get ready to dive into the book of Acts with July’s Come Follow Me New Testament Textables! Each week you’ll discover a scripture to share, a question to ponder, and the weekly assignment in downloaded images ready for you to share.
How You Use the New Testament Textables
Include them in your ward’s weekly newsletter or Facebook posts! It’s a great way to keep people organized and answer any questions that may pop up.
Print them out and hang them up on the fridge as reminder to you and your family throughout the week.
Text them to your spouse or teens to keep everyone on the same page. I send one at the beginning of the week, another after our second lesson, and the last one Saturday night. It’s a great way to help them ponder throughout the week and remind them to do their own personal study.
Send them to the group you are studying with to start a conversation on a week you might not be meeting together on.
Email them to your missionary and share something new you learned that week as you studied the scriptures.
Schedule emails to yourself at the beginning of the week with each of these images. It’s a great reminder to yourself to take the time to stop and study or ponder.
Send the question or scripture to someone in your church class. Ask them to prepare a few thoughts to share on Sunday.
And so many more ways!
HOW TO UNZIP YOUR COME FOLLOW ME TEXTABLE FILES
On Your Desktop
Techwalla has a great tutorial whether you use Windows or a Mac about how to unzip a file. You can then email the images to yourself to use on your mobile devices as well or add them to your Google Drive or other cloud network. REMEMBER: You need to use the files you extracted, not the ones still in the zip file.
On Your Mobile Device
You may need to download an app in order to unzip the file (or even download a zip file). WinZip is an app that works on both iPhones and Android. Once I had WinZip downloaded on my phone, all I had to do was click on the zip file to open it. Next click on the three dots or menu bar at the top to “Select All” then click on the menu bar again and click “Extract to.” You can then choose which file to move them to and add them to your email or text from there.
For those with iPhones, this is what worked for one reader: Download WinZip. Then hold your finger on the download link. Choose, “Open in Notes.” Go to Notes and it will prompt you to “Open with WinZip.” It will unzip and give you each textable. Hold your finger on each file one at a time. When it opens, push the “forward” icon at the top of the page and choose, “save image” from that screen. They will go into your photos folder and you can easily text those by attaching a photo to your text.
You can also upload the zip file to your Google Drive from your phone and it will unzip it for you when you go to open it (at least it does on Android phones). You may still need to extract them before using them though.
If you still have problems, try asking your family or neighbors for help as all computers and phones are different; it’s hard for me to give you individual advise. REMEMBER to use your extracted files, not the ones still in the zip folder.
PLEASE NOTE: You can share these images one at a time with your friends and family. You can print them and hang them up in your church classroom. However, you can not share the entire file. Please share the post link instead. This allows us to keep these items free. You can not alter these images in any way or use them for commercial purposes. By downloading the textables, you agree to these terms.
